Biden Praises Bush On Colbert's Show

Comedian Stephen Colbert honored U.S. troops returning from Iraq with a special show featuring a special guest: Vice President Joe Biden.

In addition to talking about Americans can help military families making sacrifices in Iraq and Afghanistan, Biden also paid a politically unusual tribute to Republican president George W. Bush on Iraq:

Mr. President, thank you. You've honored these guys, you've honored women, you've honored these troops. And I've known you your entire eight years as president. I've never known a time when you didn't CARE about happened. We disagreed on policy. But you deserve a lot of credit, Mr. President.

Democrats erase 10-point Gallup gap - The Hill's Blog Briefing Room

Democrats erase 10-point Gallup gap - The Hill's Blog Briefing Room

Say goodbye to the 10-point lead Republicans enjoyed in last week's Gallup poll of generic congressional preferences.

Gallup's weekly tracking poll of the generic ballot, a key predictor of voters' actions in elections, showed Democrats and Republicans tied at 46 percent -- down from the 10-point lead the GOP held just a week ago.

The shift, the polling group noted, marked the first time in five weeks where Republicans didn't hold some sort of advantage over Democrats. Last week's 51-41 percent lead was heralded as "unprecedented" for Republicans

New polls build GOP confidence - The Hill's Blog Briefing Room

New polls released Tuesday suggest Republicans might be on the verge of the "wave" election they need to win back control of the House and Senate.

The polls cast voters as angry with congressional incumbents, which is bad news for Democrats controlling the House and Senate.

In an ABC News/Washington Post poll released Tuesday morning, 55 percent of registered voters said they believed it was important to have Republicans control Congress "to act as a check on [President] Obama's policies."

President Obama's top political guru said Tuesday that he believes 70 House races and 15 Senate races are in play this fall.

Dems can't blame Bush for ObamaCare - The Hill's Pundits Blog

While the trifecta of stimulus/bailouts/ObamaCare is what is mostly touted as the explanation for the waning Democratic political fortunes, ObamaCare is the mother-lode of straws that broke the camel's back and crushed it. Democrats know this, but can't acknowledge it. Why? Because they can't blame ObamaCare on George W. Bush. And that leaves them with nothing, and nowhere to hide.

The Ground Zero mosque - what US could learn from Israel

The Ground Zero mosque - what US could learn from Israel

In its basic form, the Ground Zero mosque debate boils down to a conflict between two competing values – American freedom of religion versus the sensitivities of the families of the victims of 9/11.

The freedom-of-religion argument suggests that if Jews sought to build a synagogue at Ground Zero (or anywhere else, for that matter), they would be within their rights. That’s the American way. The opposing view suggests that while not every Catholic was guilty in the Holocaust, and not every Muslim perpetrated the crimes of 9/11, sensitivities still matter. Pope John Paul II had the decency to force the Carmelite nuns out of Auschwitz, and Muslim leaders, too, ought to relocate their project.


Similarly, the mutual accusations are parallel: If you are opposed to the mosque, you are an Islamophobic racist. And if you’re in favor of it, you’re simply insensitive to the pain of those who lost loved ones in the attack.


But we Israelis have learned from our experience that matters are more complicated. One need not be racist or Islamophobic to be concerned about the mosque. For life in our region has taught us that the first necessary step to defending yourself is acknowledging that someone else is out to destroy you.
